How-To: Burlap & Buttons Shirt Embellishment

Hani of Craftionary used an old embroidery technique called couching to create this intricate embellishment on a plain white shirt. She built braids with burlap string, and then attached them to the surface of the fabric with bands of stitching.
Combined with some buttons and machine embroidery, the result is dimensional and very pretty. Get the full how-to on her blog!
